IN ITS MARCH  ISSUE ABR BROKE THE NEWS OF LAUNCH TECHNOLOGIES SOUTH AFRICA’S EXTREMELY ATTRACTIVE UPGRADE OFFER ON THE X-431 MASTER, AND WE PROMISED TO GIVE FURTHER INFORMATION ON THIS VERSATILE AND USEFUL WORKSHOP TOOL. WE ARE HAPPY TO DO THIS, BUT FAR MORE IMPORTANTLY WE NEED TO URGENTLY ADVISE THE MARKET THAT THIS PROMOTION HAS BEEN A PHENOMENAL SUCCESS, AND TO ENCOURAGE EXISTING X-431, ADC2000 AND CARLINK OWNERS TO PLACE THEIR ORDERS NOW, AS THE X-431 MASTER IS LITERALLY FLYING OFF THE SHELVES. THE REASON THAT WE DO THIS IS THAT THERE IS A STRONG POSSIBILITY OF STOCK SHORTAGES IN THE COMING MONTHS. ABR spoke to Hans Coetzee, Marketing Manager of Launch Technologies S.A. (Pty) Ltd, who attributes the possible savings of 60% as the major factor behind the success of the programme. Hans describes this promotion as one of the most “realistic programmes” that he has been involved in, as it enables workshops to upgrade to a world class product at realistic prices. 

The global success of the X-431 Master is the testimony to the qualities of this top class piece of equipment, and it is the worldwide demand that concerns Hans as to availability in the coming months. Despite this, Launch Technologies S.A. is prepared to continue with its offer to its valued customer to upgrade their existing Launch diagnostic machines at a cost saving of up to 60% on the price of the X-431 Master, depending on the age and condition of their existing equipment. The Launch X-431 Master still uses the same proved, user-friendly operating procedure as its predecessor, but has a considerably larger vehicle database (55 marques vs. 28 for the Super Scanner), and with its increased computing power is communicates with vehicles much faster than the X-431 Super Scanner. It also comes with a unique pin connector which incorporates the BMW, Can-Bus II, OBD II and Smart OBD II plug amongst many others. The success of the programme has meant that Launch S.A. now has many traded-in Super Scanners in excellent condition, which are now available to new customers, particularly those in the emerging market, at very good prices. Launch has upgraded these machines to the latest specs available for these machines, and where additional data is required, downloadable software is available at reasonable prices. In addition, there will be a three-month warranty on these machines.
